The transfer rumour involving Jadon Sancho and Manchester United has been looming large this summer. The Premier League club was said to have made Sancho their primary transfer target. Sancho also seemed to be interested in returning to his homeland.
The transfer saga has taken a sudden turn with Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc telling the press that Sancho will be staying at Dortmund in the upcoming seasons after signing a contract extension.
Michael Zorc told reporters on Monday: “Jadon Sancho will play for us in the upcoming season. The decision is final. I think that answers all your questions.”
“Last summer we already raised Jadon’s wage to fit his development. In connection with that, we extended his contract to 2023.”
Manchester United was hoping to sign Sancho this summer but had reportedly been unwilling to meet Dortmund’s €120m asking price. They thought they could reach an agreement with Dortmund but this contract extension has turned the transfer upside down.
Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replied when asked about Sancho: “I can’t comment on other team’s players, I can’t do that. You know that. I never do.”
According to various reports, Borussia Dortmund had set Manchester United a deadline on 10th August to submit a reasonable offer but it seems the Premier League club has not taken the deadline seriously.
Jadon Sancho who had a terrific Bundesliga campaign will remain in Germany for the upcoming season. He will now help Dortmund to challenge for the Bundesliga and Champions League titles next season.
